While the ruling party in the State, Peoples Democratic Party is working to strengthen its fold to be able to maintain its dominance in Adamawa State, the All Progressives is also working to return to power in the State after it lost the governorship seat to PDP in 2019 election.

Recall that the All Progressives Congress was controlling Adamawa State before the 2019 governorship election when the then incumbent Governor of the State, Bindow Jibrilla of APC lost his reelection to the current Governor of the State, Ahmadu Fintiri of PDP.
However, available indicators have shown that the former Governor of the State, Bindow Jibrilla may likely return to defeat the incumbent Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri because for two strong reasons.

His Political Influence In The State

As a former Senator and former Governor of Adamawa State, Jibrilla has been able to build a strong political structure in the State that would make it easy to return as the next Governor of Adamawa State in 2023.
Many political pundits believed that the influence of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in his home State in Adamawa was what made it possible for Fintiri to defeat Jibrilla.
APC Will Fight Back To Win Adamawa State
Another thing that may also make it easy for Jibrilla to return as the next Governor of Adamawa State is the fact that APC will fight back to return to power in Adamawa State.

After the party failed to retain its dominance in Adamawa State during the 2019 governorship election in the state, APC will fight back in 2023 to return to power in the State.
Bindow Jibrilla appears to be the most influential politician to give victory to APC in 2023 Adamawa governorship election. This is why APC may likely support him to end PDP's dominance in Adamawa State.
